Trip Report: Geneva Steam

I’ve attended EVERY SINGLE ONE of the Geneva Steam conventions! Okay, that’s only three so far, and since it’s a mere hour’s drive from my home, it’s not really that much of an accomplishment. Even so, Geneva Steam is a small but growing steampunk convention, and I find I’m enjoying it more every year. The […]

Geneva Steam Coming Up!

Two well turned-out Steampunks in the Vendor’s Room from last year’s Geneva Steam. I’ll be attending steampunk convention Geneva Steam Con the weekend of March 10-12. The convention is being held at the Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan, Wisconsin. I’ll be participating in two events at the convention, both on Saturday. At 3 PM I’ll […]

2016 In Review

From the title, this must sound like a desperately boring post, but please bear with me for a moment: I’d like to record a few summaries for future reference. First of all, I passed the 10,000 page views mark in the very last days of calendar year 2016. This represents how many pages were looked […]

Grand Masquerade Trip Report, Part Two of Two

Day the Sixth (Saturday September 3): Another dull day at the booth. Booth time was interrupted by a keynote address at noon. Since they closed the registration room and that’s where the Onyx Path table was located, I was sprung to go listen. Big plans ahead for the World of Darkness, folks. After we closed […]

Grand Masquerade Trip Report, Part One of Two

This blog post originally appeared as a series of Facebook posts, cataloging my trip to New Orleans, Louisiana for the Grand Masquerade, a gaming convention focusing primarily on Live Action Role-Playing (or LARP, for short). I have collected these posts, edited them for clarity (and brevity) and present them to you here for your enjoyment. […]

Grand Masquerade Inspiration

As you read this, I will be wending my way home from the Grand Masquerade in New Orleans. It’s been an interesting trip, full of companionship and chaos, and was my first-ever visit to the Crescent City. The Grand Masquerade is not held every year, and I can see why; the logistics involved in running […]

My 2016 GeekKon Schedule

Geek.Kon is THIS WEEKEND in beautiful Madison, Wisconsin! I will once again be attending as a special guest, and I’m involved in several panel discussions and other events. The main guests of honor include: actor Jason Carter (Marcus Cole from Babylon 5), writer Enrica Jang, voice actress Christina Kelly, voice actor Jerry Jewell, writers, cosplayers, […]

Back From Gen Con — With News!

Last week I attended Gen Con in Indianapolis, Indiana, along with 60,000 of my closest friends. I was working the Onyx Path booth during the show, and had a great time. It was wonderful to catch up with friends — many of whom I hadn’t seen in a year or more — and to enjoy […]

The Steamy Motor City Affair

The author with Sarah Hans, author, editor, and all-around snazzy dresser I just returned from Motor City Steam Con in Livonia, Michigan, and man, are my gears tired. Motor City Steam is a first-year convention with a Steampunk theme. This was my first time taking my enthusiasm for Steampunk out of state, and I wasn’t […]
